PARK RIDGE, Ill. - Indiana sprinter Stacey Clausing has been awarded Big Ten Co-Athlete of the Week for the period ending April 4, the league office announced on Monday. Clausing earned the first weekly conference honor of her career after posting two first-place finishes at the Indiana Relays over the weekend. The St. Mary's, Ohio, native shares the award with Liz Roehrig of Minnesota.
In the second annual Indiana Relays, the sophomore finished almost two seconds faster than the runner-up in the 400m with a regional qualifying time of 54.58 and just missed a second qualifying standard in the 200m, clocking in at 23.97.
Clausing is the first female Hoosier to earn Athlete of the Week since the 2002-03 season when Danielle Carruthers was recognized on April 19, 2003.
Indiana is back in action on April 9, when it heads to the Pepsi Invitational for a quadrangular meet in Eugene, Ore. The scored meet features Oregon, Washington and Missouri.
